Well, in her mind it’s not shade. She was simply speaking about public knowledge.
And she’s sticking by it.
Towanda Braxton called out her sister Tamar Braxton‘s husband Vincent Herbert on Twitter for his tax problems.
During a battle on February 13 with a Twitter user, Towanda was called out for being jealous of Tamar — especially since Tamar’s husband is successful and hers isn’t.
But Towanda didn’t back down … at all! She threw Herbert right under the bus.
“@mslady57 check the web boo! He also owes 3.3 million to the irs….guess I’m jealous of that too huh?
“I was in trouble because it was totally out of character for me, until I explained,’Hey these children are attacking your niece and your nephew,’” she continued. “Then they understood. Like ‘Okay, we get it. We wouldn’t have done it that way, but we get it.’”
But what were people saying that was so horrendous? One of her hecklers on Twitter wished a horrible fate on her kids. “They said ‘I wish Towanda’s kids got raped and run over by a bus,’” Towanda recalled. “See people didn’t see that stuff. They just saw what I wrote. So after that I have to say that was 100% out of character for Towanda to respond, but I wasn’t thinking about what was right and what was wrong at that moment I was just reacting and responding.

Many people thought that Towanda’s comments were out of line, but she doesn’t see it that way since she wasn’t airing any family secrets. News of Vincent’s tax lien was reported by several blogs and media outlets. In Towanda’s opinion, she was just reminding one hater that Vincent’s wealth doesn’t mean that he hasn’t got any issues. However, she did defend her loyalty to her family and keeping their private business private.
